I've done a lot of business travel and spoken at Internet and media conferences throughout the northern hemisphere. I&#39;m a budget traveler, not a big spender. Generally I get someone else to pay for my airfare and hotel while speaking, but everything else -- especially my side trips to great places like Prague, St. Petersburg and Bangkok -- is at my own expense. I&#39;ve learned to deal with language barriers, to eat where the locals eat, to ride public transportation and to stay at inexpensive hostels, pensions, and private homes.
